Company Confidential (Current)Analog Design and Verification Process Product/IP specification Implement Verify o What is the current status of the design? o Have we verified all specifications? o Who needs help? o Are we on the right track? o Report for team members/manager More corners means more data to Analyze We’ve got a problem here!

12 © 2010 Mentor Graphics Corp. Company Confidential Novel Aspects of this work Compatible coverage based verification between Analog and Digital design verification —Coverage generation and analysis infrastructure is common between Analog and Digital design —Information exchange format is UCIS Unique characteristics of analog design and verification are addressed —Use of existing language and tool for analog design —Can be basis of Regression data Management/Analysis Scalable to most analog designs Design debug information is annotated Extendable to cover Physical Specification/Verification requirements
